The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Great Secret

DEFINITIONS

Great Secret:

The “Higher” always controls the “Lower.” What is magically created on the higher planes—Causal, Mental, and Astral—will precipitate action on the next lower plane, and if so “instructed” through ritual and intention will manifest as physical reality.
